PP: Wasted so much money today. I went to get my hair cut and left with something far shorter than I wanted. I then decided to jazz it up a bit by dying a purple streak in the front. Bleaching it was a disaster, dying it was an even bigger disaster, and what I intended to be a dark purple streak turned into a bright purple chunk. I'm having someone bring me a box of dark brown dye tomorrow to try to save my hair, because I refuse to leave the house like this. Also, I discovered that I hate pomade.

PP2: this growler of beer is not that good and I regret buying it too.

PP: Did catering for a reception at a pretty divey music hall. Cool place, but there was pretty much no space for us to work in. The other cook stayed in their tiny "kitchen" area to prepare the cold food and the food that was already cooked, while I had to set up on a balcony upstairs to fry things. We had to run an extension cord out to the balcony for the fryers, and over the night I ended up shorting out the upstairs breaker twice, which meant I couldn't cook and the guests had to be in the dark for a bit. One of my fryers had apparently accumulated some flour gunk on the heating element and started to smoke, so I unplugged it and only used the other one. Then THAT one just stopped working. At this point I had to settle for the smoky fryer that I had no way and no time to clean out and hope for the best. At this point it was raining, but thankfully there was an awning that covered me and the food. Then the rain got heavier, and what I assume was some kind of rain drainage gutter pipe thing overflowed, dousing me, the rest of the food, and my workstation in rainwater. Everything was ruined so I had to toss it all and clean up. That's when I noticed all the standing water on the balcony...the METAL balcony...and saw the extension cord outlet with the fryers still plugged in hanging dangerously close to the water, to the point where I could have probably been electrocuted had I not noticed it and snatched it up in time.

Later, I got hit in the balls really hard by a piece of metal. That shit hurt.

Dude, pet peeves are supposed to be minor annoyances and shit. We've all turned it into the "Let's bitch about our lives" thread. I'd deem missing your lady as something more than acceptable for what we've created here.

If the "PP:" ritual wasn't so ingrained in our minds, I'd almost argue that we should call it the feels thread or something, but I'm not one to screw with tradition.

"Wow, you guys must be really miserable if all you can do is go around and shit on everybody else."
"Hey, you paid for it, now shut the fuck up and sit your ass down. If I wanted lip from you, I'd unzip my fucking pants."

I, um, may have used that one at my current job a couple times. Doesn't help that apparently my catch phrase is "Eat a dick."

PP:  Pissed away 30 bucks on Sony station cash cards yesterday.  I don't usually like the idea of actually paying to subscribe to an MMO but I've been playing DCUO often enough that I've been considering it.  I was in Wal Mart and noticed they carry Sony "cash cards" that you can use for either a month sub or use as Marketplace cash for buying in game goodies.  Wal-Mart cards have a five dollar bonus of Sony's cash points included.  I was like , "Sweet, a month sub PLUS extra points to dick around buying random crap, that sounds like a legit way to trial-run a sub, I'll take two."  Yea... apparently the Sony PC marketplace and PS3 marketplace are COMPLETELY seperate and these card are only good for the PC marketplace.  Which is completely useless to me.  Nothing like setting fire to 30 bucks just to watch it burn.

Have you already redeemed them? There are sites that let you sell off giftcards and shit.

I can not even begin to describe how much I know this feel.

You and I need to figure out how to make being embittered, snarky assholes into something profitable and start a business.

Go Fuck Yourself INC.

The worst part about it is I feel stuck. Because this was my first official, tax-paying job, I've got this sense of loyalty to the company and I feel like I'm going to feel terrible about leaving, even when I know deep down it'll do wonders for my mental health. Then I factor in that I'm a college drop-out with few practical skills, so I don't know if I'll be able to find anywhere that will offer equal or higher pay if they'll even hire me in the first place.

On the bright side, my sister's fiance and my best friend are encouraging me to apply at their respective workplaces, so at least I have that to consider. Future in-law's place sounds like a pretty cushy gig, but on the other hand, best friend's place has him and a reportedly cute barista who is a huge fan of Coheed and Cambria.

Life is hard.

PP: I'm reaching my breaking point with my job. The promotion didn't mean shit, I'm the lowest man on the totem pole despite being there longer than all but one other person, and everyone I legitimately got along with has either left, is leaving, or is in prison for attempted murder.

AP: 4:30 in the morning. I'm still up reading archived threads from /tg/ and came across one of a guy posting a play-by-play (with pictures!) of his experience in an erotic roleplay server on NWN. It was hilarious enough to begin with, but then I came across this gem in the replies.

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 2. I didn't even know it was released today, so that was a pleasant surprise.

A very solid episode with plenty of intense moments, but there are a lot of soft, pleasant moments too. Those were nice. And, of course, there's the reveal that made me freak out with excitement even though I totally saw it coming.

I had been considering tackling Hellblazer next, but something in me kept going "Nahhh."

Been reading Scott Snyder's American Vampire and enjoying it.

It's not a common occurrence in most parts of the southern US, so we aren't as prepared for it as the north. Even those of us who are prepared have trouble because we have to deal with the majority who aren't on the roads, and that is pretty much a huge clusterfuck.

I just tried to read a spellbook and it spawned a dick-ton of fire monsters. Pretty sure the mining town is going to burn to ashes.

Oops.

I think it's kind of funny. Years ago we were on the news for declaring a state of emergency due to snow. Now we're on the news because someone's car blew the fuck up.

Snowpocalypse 2014, bitches.
